First day of DN sailing

Kennedy and I joined a couple of kiters and a skate sail on Silver Lake Thursday! A solid 4” of ice in 45F sunshine with South winds of 10-13. Great conditions to rip a short course until the necks couldn’t take it anymore. Got the gps up to 45 mph! One small working seam developed toward the west shore, with a small open spot near a point of land.
There is a suitable DNR launch on the SW corner of lake. Follow Hwy 7 west about one mile, make a sharp left. Not marked gravel road. You feel like it’s a private farm road but head straight east to the trees.
Looks like 2” snow coming Friday night!
